Inmate Releases

This section includes statistics on the number of inmates who were released from the Florida prison system during the period from July 1, 1997 through June 30, 1998.

Releases are grouped into two broad categories: Permanent Releases and Temporary Releases. Permanent releases are those inmates who have reached the end point of a state prison sentence and whose state prison record has been officially closed out. Temporary releases are those inmates currently in the service of a state prison sentence who are not in the physical custody of the department and whose prison record is still currently active.
